Joe Daley is a little heard of saxophone legend in the history of Chicago Jazz. This trio, featuring Hal Russell (of NRG ENSEMBLE fame) on drums and Chicago's Occult Bookstore proprietor Russell Thorne on bass, existed for only a handful of years before Daley's resistance to the free jazz and avant influences being brought into the group by the rhythm section caused the group to dissolve. The tunes here reflect an interest in the coming wave of avant garde developing in mid 60s Chicago with the...

Over the course of the past decade Harmons work has become more and more influenced by the writings of Kabalistic and Sufic mystisism. This piece is an extend meditation on the life and work of the author of the Zohar, Moses de Leon. Foremost to the structure of the piece is an outlining representation of the mystical word as hagiographic textbook; An illusion of historic reference like a veil across the contemporary thoughts of the now. This is the center piece of Harmons current electronic...

These seven tracks represent the output of a singular event in the development of Harmons work. Using two Palm 105 PDAs and a freeware program modified by Harmon the sonic tapestries in these works were created by the interaction of the two Palmtops. Communicating over their infrared ports the pieces evolved in a call and response style. Harmon would create a seed sound by touching the screen of one Palmtop and then the conversation between the two PDAs would begin. These pieces and their...

These dense electronic compositions outline the early minimal aspects of Harmon's work. Built upon layers of exaggeratedly slowed down environmental recordings each piece becomes a meditation on the mundane aspects of existence. Like soundtracks for the abstract film that is our lives; the three works remain the least improvised and yet most compelling of Harmons early electronic work. 1 - Cause We Couldnt Be Bother Otherwise 2 - Something I Wouldnt Talk About 3 - Trying To Be Alone on a Sunday...

Almost beyond the self imposed boundaries of his other works these three compositions reflect the diverse interest in extended micro amplified tones that has left its mark on a handful of Harmons works. Three pieces of super elongated field recordings cut and pasted over each other to create an abyss of sonic exegesis.

Returning from a stay in Warsaw during the Winter/Spring of 2001 Harmon recorded these two pieces from found acoustic noises in his travels. Fields of White stretches out the earlier compositional style of Harmons work into a wall of disjointed and abstract noisescapes. The length of the piece allows the listener room in which to absorb the transient structure of microtonal frequencies and shifting layers of cutup sounds. The shorter piece, Something From Nothing, acts as an appendix to the...
